Datapipe (News - Alert) has been in the news for a number of reasons over recent months, accumulating an impressive number of accolades and titles to perfectly position it as a top contender in the cloud hosting space. As we rounded the corner toward welcoming December, the company added yet another honor to its list; Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) (AWS) recently named the company a Premier Consulting Partner.
AWS is a self-described service that “delivers a set of services that together form a reliable, scalable and inexpensive computing platform ‘in the cloud.’” Among the 15 recipients – including Datapipe – of the Premier Consulting Partner designation for 2012/2013 were MarketShare, Razorfish, Aquilent and Citytech.
AWS also elaborated on the process of becoming an esteemed partner, saying, “In order to be considered for the Premier Consulting Partner designation, partners must first have achieved the status of Advanced Consulting Partner under APN. In selecting the recipients of this new designation, AWS used both quantitative and qualitative criteria. Selection of AWS Premier Consulting Partners is an annual process. The next application process for this designation will start in summer 2013.”
If you want to apply for the Premier Consulting Partner designation but are not registered with APN yet, the company urges you to register as a Consulting Partner via the APN Registration Form. The same also applies if your firm is registered with APN but wishes to upgrade to either the Standard or Advances tiers.
A big congratulation goes out to Datapipe and the 14 accompanying recipients!
